    bury the Likud-Beitenu led coalition because for the majority of Israelis, the next 2013 election will be like a referendum for a peace agreement with the Palestinians. And obviously to take such unilateral settlement construction indicates a provocative maneauver and a type of nonchalance about the international community which the Jewish state depends upon. It's too bad because speaking today to a well respected Orthodox Rabbi, I got the impression that should PM Netanyahu (whom the Orthodox believe is their "Boy Wonder") decide to vacate some settlements and reach agreement with the PA, then they would have to accept the decision, however, reiterating that it might not lead to peace with our adversaries. But he sounded somewhat flexible and not adamently against. Well that remains to be seen, but by throwing out the option of two-states side by side before negotiating a peace agreement, we'll never know from the start because this government is not contributing its utmost effort in doing so. It's a pity.
